Facebook is finally bringing editing to its mobile apps and mobile web. Previously, posts could only be deleted entirely. Android and mobile web users will be the first ones to see this new feature, which begins rolling out today. iOS users will have to wait a bit longer to get the feature.
With the new editing feature, users can now tap on a post to edit it. This makes fixing typos much easier instead of deleting your post and writing it out again. There will be a viewable history of the changes too so users will get some context of what’s changed in an update.
Additional updates include the ability to create and share albums from the mobile app and sharing emoticons, which are both pretty minor update. This update will be released in a staggered roll-out so it may be a few days before you see your update.
UPDATE: This post previously stated that only the mobile web would be getting editing features but Facebook’s desktop site will also get the editing feature.
